Transcend Stalking Ambassadors Suite

Alice Ruggle Stalking Awareness Award

Transcend Stalking Ambassadors is a progressive suite of Ofqual regulated qualifications that sit in sector subject area 1.3 Health and social care.  

This suite is uniquely designed for learners in vocational roles in any educational environment working with young people. It aims to raise awareness through deployment of qualified  Stalking Ambassadors For Education Environments [SAFEE] as defined by the Alice Ruggles Trust and their education partner St Mary’s University 

The suite is comprised of the following qualifications: 

The rationale for the development and deployment of this suite of qualifications is to raise awareness of stalking in education through qualified stalking awareness ambassadors and campaigners. The intent is to prevent incidents of stalking and to protect those who experience. 

Alice Ruggle was murdered in 2016, aged just 24, by an ex-boyfriend following a relentless campaign of stalking. Stalking is a seriously distressing and potentially life-threatening crime. This needs to be recognised by everyone. Stalking behaviour must result in immediate action both to protect the victim and to deal effectively with the perpetrator.  

The Alice Ruggles Trust was established by Alice’s family. It exists to raise awareness of stalking which includes coercive control, to ensure that relevant legislation is effective and adhered to, and to bring about lasting improvements in the management of perpetrators and the protection of victims. The Trust is a member of the National Stalking Consortium. The Alice Ruggles Trust’s mission is to help prevent what happened to Alice happening to others. This suite is designed to underpin the important work of the Alice Ruggles Trust in support of their mission: ‘We need to bring stalking to an end’. 

This qualification suite is developed in collaboration with Alice Ruggles Trust and St Mary’s University as the technical partners. This qualification suite is validated through consultation with education and equality representatives.  

The qualification is delivered to learners through St Mary’s University
